Over two million children under 10 live with the extreme consequences of a treatable birth defect, known as clubfoot, that causes one or both feet to turn inwards and upwards.
Left untreated, the condition is a root cause of illiteracy, abuse, malnutrition, and poverty in many parts of the world. 175,000 babies are born with it every year, mostly in low- and middle-income countries where fewer than 15% have access to proper treatment.

MiracleFeet is bringing the low-cost, nonsurgical standard of care, routinely provided in advanced health systems, to low-income countries. The solution is surprisingly inexpensive and results in full correction of the foot in four to six weeks.
95% of cases can be cured using the Ponseti Method, involving a series of plaster casts followed by a foot-abduction brace worn at night to prevent relapse. We increase access to this treatment through partnerships with local healthcare providers in 29 countries. With MiracleFeet’s support, the care is free or extremely low-cost for the families who receive it.
